Before singing Even Angels at a concert in Jacksonville, Fla., over the weekend, Fantasia Barrino, 27, made an announcement to the audience: she’s pregnant.
“You are the first persons that I share this news with,” she said. “And I share this with you because I can relate to you … This child that I’m carrying, God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all.”
The baby will be the American Idol alum’s second child, joining daughter Zion, 9.
The news comes about a year after Barrino was hospitalized for an attempted drug overdose following accusations that she broke up the marriage between her rumored boyfriend and his wife. At the time she revealed she was pregnant but had an abortion. But happier times have befallen the singer this year, with the announcement that she’ll be playing Mahalia Jackson in a new movie, and now, she’s pregnant.
